I found a bug with the Ho-oh GX card that was being exploited against me in play. The Phoenix Burn attack should make it so that specific Ho-oh GX card cannot attack in the following turn. The effect is added onto the card properly, but when it retreats to the bench, it loses it's penalty, so that if you switch it into active, it can once again use Phoenix Burn. As I said it was exploited against me as the player had clearly made his deck to use Phoenix Burn, use Invasion from Dawn Wings Necrozma GX to move it to bench, then with Float Stone retreat the Dawn Wings Necrozma GX back to the previously active Ho-oh GX, in order to ***** Phoenix Burn. This is a rather annoying thing to deal with, and a very glaring bug. Thank you.

Sorry, it's neither a bug or an exploit.  It's working as intended, and it's the reason your opponent built that specific deck.

Hello Yohanx27,


I have updated the title of your thread to match the format used by this subforum.


RobRatt is correct. This is working as intended.
